Lipo cavitation is a new aesthetic treatment which uses a leading edge technology whereby it converts fat cells into liquid which can then be naturally drained by the body’s own filtration system. Generally, one fat cavitation treatment lasts 30-45 minutes where a single part of the body is treated.
Lipo cavitation works by using ultrasonic waves (30-45kHz) which consists of compression – expansion impulses that travel in high-speed cycles. This back and forth cycle then causes and infinite quantity of micro-cavities or micro-bubbles that gradually enlarge. This progressive enlargement which finishes as micro-bubbles start to collide and implode, producing shock waves that favour emulsification and elimination of fat tissues. The liquid is then easily vacuumed out from the body via the lymphatic and urinary system.
This treatment is simultaneously combined with the use of radiofrequency (RF) energy which heats up and tightens tissue to boost blood flow and break down cellulite and fat. The radiofrequency energy heats the skin without damaging it, in order to break down fatty cells and stimulate collagen production, which improves skin tone and elasticity.
The Lipo Cavitation can be used to treat excess pockets of fat on the stomach, hips and thighs, love handles (flanks), male breasts , reduce cellulite and tighten saggy skin. Body contouring offers a great way to get your body back that requires no recovery times, leaves no scars and needs no anesthesia.
This treatment however is not a method to lose weight but to reshape the body. It is particularly indicated for the reduction of adiposity, the famous “love handles” that won’t go away with diet and exercise.
Most clients found the treatment to be easy and trouble free as it is non-invasive. Some may experience warmth during the treatment and a small amount of noise discomfort, but there is no pain.
Specific guidelines for before and after treatment:
- Drink about 1.5L to 2L of water before and after the treatment, as water is the key component to eliminate the fat.
- Follow a low calorie and healthy diet
- Exercising after the treatment is recommended to stimulate lymph movement.
- Avoid alcohol or caffeine in the day of treatment and 48hrs after.
